Will be in the car on my way from NH to Staten Island.

1/2 of the game will have to listen to the Bruins radio guys, 2nd half with Kenny Albert.

Not much hope but I'll be cheering the boys on!

LGR!

I'm sure if we could he'd tell us that its because both he and most of the team hasn't been good enough. Not really anything we don't already know....

Lol? We can trade Del Zotto because he sucks, but face it the rangers dosent have enough good Ds. U should not trade the few good Ds we have

We can trade Del Zotto, while Girardi, Mcd, Moore, Strålman and Staal are too valuable. U wont get an elite forward for Eminger.

Next season I hope the top 6 Ds will be Staal, Girardi, Strålman, Mcd, Del Zotto and Moore. 7th D will be Eminger.

I think we lose the 2nd to the Sharks if we advance past the 2nd round, as well.

Yeah against ****** teams.

And the longest win streak they had in that stretch was 3.

Clowe was continuously getting top 6 minutes with the Sharks and failed to produce. Couture masked him to being a better player puck possession wise, his shooting differential without Couture on the ice is simply awful. He is a product of his linemates, but can't even seem to carry his own weight anymore. I don't see him meshing in the lineup and he is too slow out there to be a factor in my opinion.

The love affair with Clowe is based entirely on toughness and size.

However I do think he fits the team identity a lot. Slow, can't skate, prone to injury and can't generate offense.
so it was between Clowe and Torres for that top 3 line physical winger at the deadline.. would you rather have Torres who can skate but gets suspended at least once a month or it seems that way

If we advance + resign, is it still only 1 pick?

I don't know about you guys, but 3-0 down in a series gives you a chance to relax and try to enjoy what may very well be the last game of the year. Take it easy and try to enjoy the viewing. Who knows? Maybe we'll win.

I wouldn't call 50+ pts (inc 1 x 60+) in 3 of the last 4 seasons failure to produce, but I guess we all have our own standards.

Still not seeing this 'love affair' you keep talking about
